Senior Associate, IT Advisory Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at KPMG in April 2010.

Interview Details – The initial interview process was very informal and I met the recruiter for coffee at the student union. We had about a 30 minute chat and next week I was at the office interviewing for a full time college hire position. From there I met with a few partners and got the offer a few days later.

Interview Question – Why do you want this job?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation since it was a college hire job.

Senior Associate Interview

Senior Associate
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at KPMG in February 2010.

Interview Details – Two to three rounds of interviews that initially start with HR recruiter and two interviewers (manager or partner/director) from the practice group. Great onboarding process that starts with one week of training in the office or out-of-town (out of pocket expenses to be reimbursed by the company).

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The base salary offered is depending on previous employer's salary so there's no room to negotiate. I negotiated for the sign-on bonus due to other offers in big 4.
